On October 25, 2010, FLA convened a second stakeholder forum on wages in Hong Kong. Titled “Wages Along the Supply Chain: Developments and Responses,” it brought together academics, practitioners, and representatives of international organizations, companies, trade unions, and monitoring organizations to discuss recent wage developments (with emphasis on Asia) and responses to address wage issues.
The one-day conference began with a general presentation on recent global wage trends and was followed by two sets of panels, the first set dealing with case studies of recent wage developments in China, Southeast Asia, and South Asia, and the second set with responses to address the wages issue involving different stakeholders. The forum concluded with a number of recommendations to move the topic on wages forward within the FLA.
